Conduit Gallery presents Maja Ruznic: "My Noiseless Entourage" opening reception
Titled after a passage by the Yugoslavian-American poet Charles Simic, "My Noiseless Entourage," an exhibition of new paintings and drawings by Maja Ruznic, traverses shifting landscapes. These works, as well as the poem, describe the matrixial subject, the gaze of a phantom "other," the core nature of the figures she paints and draws. Ruznic’s subjects are moving to and from locations, in and out of existence.
It is unsurprising that Ruznic’s paintings dropped almost all their saturation when she moved to New Mexico from California. Surrounded by the placid silence of southwestern dust, the paintings are now the color of twilight.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through April 5.
